Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 5/5 -- Sterling, memorable WWII classic directed by Wellman.
It depicts a handful of men in the Battle of the Bulge with as much realism as Hollywood can muster. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- One of the best films to depict World War II to be made by people who experienced it. Full Review
"Dedicated to the battered bastards of Bastogne," this dramatic historic film directed by William Wellman tells the story of a U.S. Army division in the European theater near the end of World War II. In a last-ditch effort to turn the tide of the war, the Germans launch a final attack that became known as the Battle of the Bulge. George Murphy, who portrays Private Ernest J. "Pop" Stazak, leads a terrific cast that also includes John Hodiak, Ricardo Montalban, and James Whitmore. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards and won two: one for its tight, unpredictable screenplay and one for its evocative black-and-white cinematography.
BATTLEGROUND is the detailed study of the drama within a fighting unit of men brought together by war and determination.
